Library WineCellaring wine is complex and costly (investment), with perfect storage conditions required. We invested in an extensive wine library where our finest wines age in perfect conditions for many years. The reward is huge, the ethereal fragrance and multi-layered complexity of a great Pinot at its peak with all the delicate aromas typical of a Grand Cru, is priceless.

Vintage 2013+

After a perfect, warm growing season we handpicked a tiny yield of less than 700g/vine of wonderful, physiologically ripe grapes for a vibrant and alluring Pinot.

Hans' Winemaking Comments+

The grapes were given four days to cold-soak before a natural wild yeast initiation of the ferment. The wine spent 24 days on skins before being pressed and transferred into 20% new French Allier barriques for malolactic fermentation and further aging for 18 months. Unfined & unfiltered to retain the great flavours. Natural sediments may show.

Tasting Notes+

Visualise walking through a lush Mediteranean herb garden and jumping into ripe berry bushes to get a sense of this tribute to Burgundy’s greatest. With hints of dark chocolate and spicy cloves, this is the perfect blend of sweet and savoury; held together with elegent tannins and fine acidity. A graceful star that will age beautifully over the next 10+ years.
